    I know what you mean....

    Here we have 2 weekly doctors visits, no midwives but whenever I get in there I can not think of what to ask, and I always leave with the doctor probably thinking "wow, she's the easiest pregnant woman I know, in and out...."

    During the time I leave and see him again, I have sooo many changes happening, even just in the past 2 days, my bump has grown like crazy, I am not able to eat much now as I feel bloated and lazy for about 2 hours after I eat a meal. Now all of my meals are TOTAL snacks, healthy ones but I am not sure if this is good for my weight as I am getting hungry much faster, and eating everything in sight..... I have tried my best as now I am noticing the BIG weight increase...

    I am not even sure if I need to have different kinds of testing done at this stage. Things are really different here. I am going in tomorrow at 8:45 am and if anyone can think of anything I should be aksing, please let me know TEE HEE

    i never remember either! lol

    got my next MW appointment next week and i am more prepared this time. have prepared my birth plans (yes, plural! lol! the first one is for my ideal home birth, and the second is my plan B / contingency plan in case i have to transfer to hospital!) and i hope to have time to go through these with her, and also talk to her about what preparations i need to make at home (if any) for my home birth.

    i have put these in my notes, right at the beginning, so even if i forget on the day we will see them and it will remind me!!

    It means she can feel 3/5ths of the head above the pelvis I believe. I just got back from mine and I'm 3/5ths was 4/5ths 2 weeks ago so little one is moving in the right direction she said it was partially engaged !! Anyway at the same time she said she still thought I was carrying high, and I measured 35 but according to all my notes thats normal for week 34 so not going to worry about it, think she had the tape measure a bit slack!!! Although she said I was still carrying high I think my bump has dropped and I no longer have rib pain which was very sore a few weeks ago.
